Our team at Touchretail worked with Urban Zoo last year to take Warrington Wolves’ eCommerce to the next level with a new, fully integrated online store.

With an illustrious history dating back to 1876, Warrington Wolves were one of the original clubs to form rugby league and are recognised as one of the most prominent and successful clubs in the sport. They are three-time Super League champions, and have won the Challenge Cup nine times, amongst many other accolades. The team are known as ‘The Wire’, which is short for ‘Wirepullers’, in reference to the major industry of the town back in the early days of the club.

 

Sports Technology & eCommerce Upgrade

Warrington Wolves partnered with sports technology specialists Urban Zoo, who are also based in Warrington, to reimagine their online presence with a brand new website. Following the successful launch of the site, the next step of the digital upgrade was to introduce an online store. The key aim of which was to give fans a seamless transition from the club’s official website to its eCommerce experience. This was where the Touchretail team came in.

 

Sports Club Retail Online & In-Store

Using their extensive experience in the sports retail sector, the Touchretail team worked with Urban Zoo to integrate TRIMS with Warrington Wolves’ new website. TRIMS provides inventory management and POS software with features designed specifically for sports club retail that synchronise in-store and online sales channels.

Such sports-specific TRIMS features include Kit Builder. This allow fans to customise their replica kit online and in-store whilst providing accurate stock management, automatic reorder and replenishment, with detailed analysis of individual letters held and sold.

The Touchretail and Urban Zoo collaboration gives Warrington Wolves’ fans the ability to link their membership across channels, see their loyalty points and redeem loyalty rewards. They will also benefit from a superior user experience online with a detailed product selection filtering process and intuitive product search.
